attending. The presiding judge
was Ed Rogers, retired from
P.B. County court. We were
quite impressed with his keep-
ing things on an even keel. A
great Power Point presenta-
tion was provided by Howie
Silver. The Public Relations
gentleman for the Waldmans
was Greg DuBose, an extraor-
dinary speaker. At one point a
biased comment came from
the audience, and he handled it
very well, while the audience
booed the bigot that made the
comment. Aside from that,
things went quite smoothly.
By 4 pm, we were standing
in line with others that wished
to question Andrew Waldman.
While on line, we took copi-
ous notes, so that when it was

The first question related to
a statement that we heard as
“no plan has been submitted

as “for this particular project
as yet.” The second question
related to a statement that we
heard as “let nature maintain
the lakes.” He clarified this
one as “we intend to work with
nature to maintain the lakes.”
We were given permission to
print these statements.
We must repeat our opinion
that it was mainly due to Judge
Rogers that there were no out-
bursts (except for the audience
response to the one bigot) and

Why Do I Want To Be President of UCO?

By: Dave Israel
First and foremost: I have lived here for 9 years and have a love for the Village. I would like to repay the Village for what it is has meant to me.
I have the skills and experience to help in this capacity.
What skills and what experience? I’m a detail person. I worked as a cryptologist with the National Security Agency for over 30 years I was
the chief of a large division of analysts; I solved many intractable problems, the solutions thereof impacting positively on the National Security,
I received the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal; the highest award bestowed by the Intelligence Community. Herewith the
unclassified Citation:
“In recognition of his especially meritorious service with the Intelligence Community for over twenty years. During this period he has
earned admiration and respect for his breadth and depth of technical knowledge. He has made key discoveries which have impacted
decisions making at the highest levels of government. Mr. Israel has patiently given scores of intelligence professionals the benefit of his
knowledge and experience and his superb leadership has provided an example for a new generation of analysts. His exemplary service
and dedication to duty reflect great credit on himself, the National Security Agency and the Intelligence Community”
After the terrorist attack on September 11th, I was recalled to set up entirely new protocols to find the perpetrators and launch new capabilities to
prevent additional attacks. I know how to do research and analysis, ferret out facts, and get to the bottom of things when faced with a question,
I do not guess; I get the accurate answer. I also know how to delegate. I have been a vice president of UCO now for the past year, in that short
time, I have created the kernel of an Information Technology department to maintain the UCO Computers and the network that controls the gate
security system and the UCO telephone network. I have been the president of my association for five years, and I serve on a number of UCO
committees; such as Advisory, Cable, Security, Operations, Insurance, and Finance. When complex questions need to be researched, which require
correct answers; I do that research for UCO.
What are my main concerns? It troubles me that our people go into UCO and are sometimes treated rudely. It troubles me also that UCO
personnel too often give out misleading or just plain wrong information. It troubles me that some of our operations are so cumbersome and time-
consuming. With the cooperation of the officers and the Delegate Assembly, I will change this. Clearly the goal is to place more professional and
highly experienced personnel as part of the UCO staff. Prime candidate departments for personnel upgrades would be Finance, Investigations,
and Information Technology and Communications. I am dedicated to total transparency in UCO Operations no secret gatherings and decision

Top 10 Reasons To
for President of UCO:
1. He already brings sanity and reason to the village.
2. He is genuinely caring and protective of older residents. He treats
everyone with respect and dignity.
3. He is incredibly productive, knowledgeable, and dedicated. He is a
wizard with anything computer related. He researches each and every
issue thoroughly.
4. He will bring UCO finances up to Generally Accepted Accounting
Procedures and make finances transparent. He is economy minded and will
find state-of-the-art solutions.
5. He is efficient. He makes other people more productive, with no wasted
time or effort.
6. He will implement proper oversight of all UCO functions. There will be
no coverups out of misplaced loyalty.
7. He will implement proper following of bylaws. There will be REAL open
meetings and improved communications.
8. He will enforce ethics, obtain proper bids, no advertising or soliciting
9. He will keep professional and cordial relationships with our business
associates. He is a tough negotiator - not inclined to sue over everything.
10. He will bring progress in understanding that CV is much too big to be
advised and directed by amateurs.

making in the dark; My UCO Administration will say “YES” at every possible opportunity. It is my unalterable task to stop UCO interference
in Association affairs.
What operations would I change? Two are most urgent. We need to simplify the procedure for getting transponders. We need to install
transponders “on demand,” no more nonsense of making appointments weeks in advance; if you come in for a transponder, you will get it then,
not later; no more keeping people waiting inordinate lengths of time. We also need to make the procedure for getting prospective owners and
renters investigated and approved a smoother and faster process. A professional needs to be brought in to assist with our investigative procedures
so we do a much better job of it and avoid legal pitfalls.
Century Village is a medium-size town. With 14,000 in-season residents and a multi-million dollar budget, it is essential we do things right.
UCO is a servant to the 309 Village associations, not boss. It needs to be a thoroughly honest servant and a competent servant, but also a servant
that knows its bounds. Well-meaning people need to take care to not “play attorney.”
Insurance is an association’s biggest single expense. The cost of insurance far exceeds what is paid to our management companies. We need
something more than a “one trick pony,” as persuasive and able as he or she may be, controlling our overall insurance operation. We need the
entire Committee to understand it thoroughly, be able to explain the details of it to others, and be able to act as a check on one another. Too much
is at stake to not have this. UCO needs to adhere to the strict contractual requirement of the Bi-lateral Agreement-that is, to simply negotiate the
policies. UCO’s name should not be anywhere on an association’s insurance policies. UCO should not be involved in any way with arranging
for repairs or remediation contractors. The individual associations should file their claims, find and select their own contractors, and call in a
public adjuster if needed. The associations must deal directly with our Insurance Agent or Insurance Company, as required. We must learn the
names and telephone numbers of our agents working in the Plastridge Agency, or perhaps in another agency that might be more attuned to our
needs in CV. Finally, in accordance with Florida Statute FS-718, each association must have a copy of each of their insurance policies as a part
of the association records — not merely the declarations pages, but rather, the entire set of policies. These should be obtained, not from UCO, but
directly from the insurance agent(s) involved or the insurance companies — in the same way you get your automobile or homeowner’s policy.
No association should have to come to UCO to get its association policies. That some associations have done this and then been stalled and put
off is intolerable.
Blowing the whistle. On our Century Village Website ( that some of you read, I and others have blown
the whistle on numerous occasions about questionable and improper Village goings-on. As president, I’ll be in a much better position to protect
your interests. Your Constitutional rights of free speech must be upheld without censorship. As your UCO president, I will serve you faithfully
and well — just as I served my country when I worked for the U.S. government for over 30 years, and in the United States Army for three years.

What You Missed

at the South
Florida Fair
By Dot Loewenstein
We took the 1 p.m. bus and
arrived after torrential rains
which affected the (outdoor!)
sand castle, but it was still
intriguing. Our first stop was
to see the female Houdini
who was submerged in water
wearing handcuffs, etc. Some
parents realized this might not
be proper for young ones to
watch, and left immediately.
“Don’t try this at home” could
have been their instructions.
From there a short walk to
another Indoor show — this
one included a sleepy little
alligator who became quite
irritated when the handler
approached. Youngsters were
invited to come on stage to
participate by putting a hand

inside the mouth of the reptile.
At this point the weather
cleared, so we ventured out-
side for a nice walk and ended
up sitting in front of Paul Bun-
yan, Lumberjack. We expected
this to be rather boring, but
needed to rest, so stayed. Well,
if you thought the alligator
show was mesmerizing, you
surely missed the best part of
the Fair — log rolling contests,
and the winner was a dog. Yes,
a Jack Russell Terrier. Re-
minded us of the water skiing
squirrel a few years ago.
Next was Dennis Lee, a
perennial singer/entertainer.
You may remember him as
the man who follows people
leaving or walking thru the
aisles, oblivious to a show in
progress. At one time, we were
so enthralled with the music
that we spontaneously got up
to dance. Of course, Dennis
approached and asked if he
could cut in, and naturally my
spouse agreed. Imagine his
surprise when Dennis took
him as his partner!
Winding down, we enjoyed
the antics of fifth graders
at Panther Run Elementary
School in Lake Worth as they
played steel drums. It was
there that we learned there are
different types of steel drums,
including doubles and triples
that produce lower notes.
On our way out, we visited
all the arts and crafts, and
stopped at the Mounts Botani-
cal spot where we were given
a tomato plant — free! Finally,
we looked at, but did not eat,
Deep Fried Pickles. What will
they cook up next year? o

For people with Medicare

Everybody’s talking about health care these days. But what are they doing
about it?
At CarePlus, we believe the best way to keep costs down is to keep
our members healthy. So we encourage the kind of lifestyle that keeps you
out of the doctor’s office, except for routine visits. The kind of health care
that makes it possible for you to take fewer medications, rather than more.
Health care that puts the focus on prevention instead
of fixing what’s wrong.
That’s the kind of health care we believe in– the kind that’s
better for everyone, because it concentrates on health.

Prescription drug coverage

Doctor visits
Preventive screenings
Fitness program membership
